This week’s WordPress challenge is weight, or weightless, anything that might invoke the feeling of either. These photos make me and probably most people wonder how anything this size can get off the ground and fly. The first one is a plane I flew to London in a couple of years ago, quite a bit larger than the usual 767 that normally traverses the route from Toronto to Halifax to Heathrow. Lots of people, once they got off the plane, had a look through the windows of the terminal to see the overall size of it.
This is the flight deck of the USS Intrepid, a retired aircraft carrier that is now a museum in New York City, it’s deck lined with various types of planes and helicopters, including a wicked looking SR71 Blackbird “stealth” plane and some very cool fighter jets, all of which can zip through the air and defy gravity effortlessly.
